Dear Sweet Pip....

Writing Pip's birthday letter was emotional as any mumma out there can imagine...Trying to put into words the year she's had, the love I have & everything was really quite hard...


Last night I took the time to re-read every single Letter to Pip from others...And let me tell you this mumma was a big hot mess...


These letters are beautiful...They amaze me & like Pip one day will, I cherish them so very much...


While I write both my hooligans letters all the time, I only share some with y'all on Happy Soul Project...Most I keep in a little book, handwritten for them to have one day...I want them to know who I was when they were little - I want them to be able to relive a memory so clearly & through my eyes...Like any mum I tend to forget things, days blend into other days, memories fade & life moves on...So these letters are my way of holding on to those moments with them...


However when Pip was born, I wanted to do something different...I wanted to do something special...And Dear Sweet Pip was created...

I wanted there to somehow be a way when she was older to know how very much she inspired people...I wanted her to be able to read a letter from others feeling how much she was loved...I wanted her to hear someone else's words & know she changed their lives...I wanted her to be able to see the happiness & hope she shared & know how very special she is because of it...

And reading back the Letters for Pip that others have already written do just that...I feel the love, the inspiration & the shine my baby girl has in them...


So a big thank you to those that have written her a letter before- I honestly believe when she is older she will cherish them like nothing else...


And to anyone who wants to write a Letter for Pip, please leave a comment below & I will add to her letters or email me at t@happysoulproject.com - To read & see more letters click HERE...

Thank you for being on this journey with us & for being a part of making my girl feel so beautifully special...

  2. Dear Pip,

    Your picture was the first one that came up in the #down syndrome instagram feed the very first time I went to it. I was still pregnant with Benny at the time, and had found out he has downs. Your beautiful light, and those happy blue eyes made me smile and cry at the same time. It took away a lot of the fears I had for Benny and inspired me to share his light and beauty. Thank You for the jibber jabbering, the smiles, the cries, and especially for looking so happy and precious in your eye patch.

    xoxo Jamie

    You are so beautiful not only in our eyes but most of all in God's eyes. Continue to be like that sweet little girl in the picture because you bring joy to everyone around especially to your Mum and Dad. You are a darling!! Grow up to be beautiful and may God bless you always and forever. Smile always.
